poll has romney ahead 50 to 48 in a buckeye state virtual tie yet there obama leads by two points in the real clear politics average of the recent ohio polls. romney went ahead with afternoon rally in iowa, but that is it for at least a day as the campaign takes a backseat to the storm. romney closing argument for final stretch is dubbed day one, job one, referring to the economy. he promises tax relief. north american energy independence. to repeal obamacare, block military cuts and balance the budget among other things. all of that is on hold. romney tonight will spend overnight in dayton, ohio, returning there without planned or scheduled campaign events tomorrow. it will likely be relief oriented but not clear it will take place in iowa. if the storm passed enough and opportunity to take part in recovery and clean-up action. possible mr. romney would head for the seacoast. at this point, all carefully choreographed final stage craft in final day of the campaign have been dashed. 200 hours less, really, before the election. exactly a week from tomorrow. the romney campaign does
obama carried this state in 2008. unemployment rate far below the national average, but mitt romney has a strong presence here. not only was he governor of neighboring massachusetts, but he owns a house here in new hampshire. kristen welker, thank you for that report. >>> from new hampshire to the sunshine state. many residents down here in florida not waiting until election day to cast their ballots. just this morning, hundreds, thousands lining up at polling places to lock in their support for their candidate of choice. will this early electoral activity impact what we see on november 6th? joining me to talk about it, a.b. stoddard associate editor on the hill and jeff greenberg. a.b., let me start with you. both candidates want to bank votes, but this has been a major push for the president, in particular. he made it his public service announcement on the trail. can democrats make enough strides with in-person early voting to prevent sweating out election night? >> well, that's what they hope. if you talk to them in these last two weeks, the goal has been all along they said they wer

is a key battle ground state. but that is a key part of the obama campaign strategy, urging people to get out and vote early. so we are here in new hampshire, which is another key battle ground state. president obama will be speaking here a little bit later on this afternoon. he will be joined by music icon james taylor. this is the president's sixth visit to new hampshire. doesn't have as many electoral votes as colorado. it only has four electoral votes. but those are four important electoral votes because this race is so razor tight, alex. president obama won this state in 2008 and hasn't seen some of the same effects of the economic downturn as other states in fact the unemployment rate here is at 5.7%. it's far below the national average. but of course mitt romney has a home in this state. he was governor of neighboring massachusetts. so he carries a lot of weight here in this state as well. i expect from president obama takes the podium later on this afternoon you will hear him continue his message to middle class voters trying to make the case that he is the candidate to best prese
on monday due to hurricane. president obama declared a state of emergency for the commonwealth of massachusetts as a result of hurricane sandy. u.s. federal offices in d.c. closed. philadelphia, the southeast pennsylvania transit authority, septa as its called, will suspend all services at the end of the sunday service. listening, they're not playing around, if you're in any of these areas, you need to listen to what your officials are telling us. george howell is in kill devil hills, north carolina. george, you have been out there all day. tell me how the weather has intensified. >> reporter: don, i can tell you right now we are actually getting a break in the wind. the winds are dying down a bit, but they are also shifting. we can tell that's happening, and that strong rain is backing off, but this storm continues to move to the north and it is changing hour by hour. here within the last few hours we've been in touch with emergency management officials here in dare county just to find out what they're dealing with. they're dealing with the flooding that's happening throughout
in the northeast. which is obama country. we expect obama to carry every state in the northeast with the exception of new hampshire. pennsylvania, believe me, pennsylvania is in play obama campaign was counting on a lot of those negative ads. people aren't going to be paying attention to them because that storm is ripping right through that state right right now. >> absolutely. >> three days of ads in pennsylvania. all of that the psychology, the money at the federal level that's going to have to be used to restore the northeast, we're talking billions and billions of dollars. it just heightens the fact we don't have enough money to upgrade our electrical grid in this country we're 40 years behind where we should be there. this smentd going to effect the election but it does make you think that 800 billion-dollar stimulus which sprinkle hurled out of airplanes and helicopters and left not a trace ended up in solyndra and other places. imagine if we had single project like highway hour picking the interstate highway system and it had been the electrical grid or burying every wire in the country und
. president obama vowing states will get all of the storm assistance they need. >> my message to the governors as well as to the mayors is anything they need we will be there. we are going to cut through red tape and not going to get bogged down. >> they will they had to orlando before it gets to the white house. >> they will assist with relief efforts they are urging supporters to keep people at risk in their prayers. >> i know people are nervous about the storm that hits the coast our thoughts and prayers are with people who find themselves in harm's way. >> mitt romney will visit ohio, iowa and wisconsin all states that could sway the election. >> turn over the evidence. they are increasing calls for the obama administration they are outraged they are staying quiet. listen to this. >> very good at touting and giving all of the details like when they got bin laden. but now we know there were tapes recordings inside the consulate during this fight and they have gotten -- they came when the fbi got in and quote top secret. >> republicans are politicizing the issue. >> is this tearrism 101. a n
the national turnout. host: barack obama losing the pennsylvania primary to hillary clinton but when the state in the general election four years ago. this point -- living in the heart of pennsylvania, i can assure you that obama was right to say how people cling to to their guns and religion. will that resonate in 2012? guest: that as a comment that has certainly stuck with a lot of pennsylvanian, particularly in the southwestern part, the more conservative democratic areas. the president made that statement in a san francisco fund-raiser in the midst of the democratic primary in pennsylvania in march and april, that primary in 2008. we six week period where there was literally nothing else going on in the campaign except the upcoming pennsylvania primary. that became a huge issue. what it does remind voters, particularly in the southwestern part of the state, of the president's position on guns. pennsylvania is a strong nra pro-gun state. it has been difficult for gun control advocates to get legislation through pennsylvania changing the gun laws here. i do not see any opportunity -- there i
, 137-39. this continues throughout the states. you see ohio, florida, colorado. obama's lead is massive. obama built the largest grassroots organization that politics saw in '08 and after he won he continued to build it. this can make a difference of two points and in a close race like this it can make all the difference in '08. it gave obama some already. that's not the situation in this case. people that have been to the ground offices say the obama offices are all about obamament the romney offices are rnc offices and not always all about romney. that leads a conservative like joe scarborough to worry about what's happening that the obama offices are building this unparalleled turnout machine and the great irony that scarborough writes for the romney camp is their candidate drirch by data and numbers his entire life is relying on the most unpredi unpredictable force of all, human emotion, to pull him over the top. i don't understand why romney and the gop have allowed this to happen? >> if it were just about having offices, obama would be in a clear lead in states like florida he's n
. right now it's the unemployment rate is 5.7% and president obama won the state into thousand eight with 9%. the executive director of the institute -- he is joining us from manchester. let's begin with tough issues for new hampshire voters. >> before i get started, i wanted to thank c-span and congratulate them on 15 years being on the air. it has been a very new book valuable resources -- a very valuable resource. we are a swing states. four electoral votes. it sounds like a small number but if al gore had won the four votes, he would have become president. they are very important. this state right to know is a tossup. the issues are different than it would be across the country. unlike nevada, that has a higher unemployment rate. ron sommer, it was 5.2%. -- and like summer, it was 5.2%. it is the number one issue but ring home like other issues. right now, we are seeing that the candidates are coming into, particularly the president has coming into the seacoast area. towns like rochester, cities like rochester are areas that are indicative of what may happen in the election. the
important state. there is an ad that says that obama's chrysler deal undermines u.s. workers. gm's ceo came out and said that the latest romney ad is politics at its worst this, is going to play out before voters in ohio. your thoughts on this? >> i was in ohio yesterday. ways in hamilton county, cincinnati then over in lebanon, and then, over in delaware county. goit a good taste of southwestern ohio. last time, obama carried ohio. it is rob portman's base. they're very, very proud of them. republicans told me they believe they're going to carry hamilton county maybe by 23,000 votes. that would be a swing of 50,000 votes by itself that would guarantee carrying ohio. people in lebanon and warren county very republican. tremendously enthusiastic. they're going to vote bigger than they voted last time for mccain. in delaware county it was a very rural area we were in. i couldn't find any obama voters. obama is going to be competitive. he's going to have cleveland and areas around dayton. i think ohio probably going to end up electing josh landel to the senate. all energy development, natural
's 8.2 then, i think it's a big problem for obama. >> ohio. the ever important state. there is an ad that says that obama's chrysler deal undermines u.s. workers. gm's ceo came out and said that the latest romney ad is politics at its worst this, is going to play out before voters in ohio. your thoughts on this? >> i was in ohio yesterday. ways in hamilton county, cincinnati then over in lebanon, and then, over in delaware county. goit a good taste of southwestern ohio. last time, obama carried ohio. it is rob portman's base. they're very, very proud of them. republicans told me they believe they're going to carry hamilton county maybe by 23,000 votes. that would be a swing of 50,000 votes by itself that would guarantee carrying ohio. people in lebanon and warren county very republican. tremendously enthusiastic. they're going to vote bigger than they voted last time for mccain. in delaware county it was a very rural area we were in. i couldn't find any obama voters. obama is going to be competitive. he's going to have cleveland and areas around dayton. i think ohio probably going to
to a certain degree, but virginia is the big state, with 13 electoral votes. what the nightmares, for obama, in particular, northern virginia is going to be hit very hard. in 2008 northern vi which is the moratic party of the state provided obama's entire victory margin in the state. it took the whole downstate sely and a tie between obama and jo mccain, northern virginia did it. so, there is concern, obviously, among s, that northern virginia might see their polling places knocked out, early absentee balloting--. >>neil: but what do they do? a lotf voting machines are hooked up to outlets, right? they need power, so, you cannot vote, is it conceivable, and it sounds incredible to me that they would extend voting or make a new voting day and push it furthe back? we e in unchartered territory. later later --t would take a court order. we have a provision for paper ballots if the electricity is off, the polling distribute paper balld e lots of problems connected to paper ballots but at least that can be done if nothinge and we hope it doesn't get do that point. >>neil: we will watc very y. t
. a new fox news poll of the swing state of virginia shows the obama/biden team down two points. the democratic ticket won virginia in 2008, the first democratic ticket to do so since 1964. there he is, mark plotkin with us again tonight. the president behind a couple points in virginia. what do you make of that? >> well, virginia is basically a republican state and they've had a good series of victories. governor bob mcdonnell won in 2009. they won the lieutenant governorship, the attorney generalship, became even in the state and have overriding majorities in the statehouse and if is basically a republican state and the -- it is basically a republican state and the president is counting on the changing demographics in virginia and as you said, it was 40 years before they actually won a presidential contest in virginia. so it's an uphill battle. >> assuming we have significant dang from sandy, do you expect the candidates to -- damage from sandy, do you expect the candidates to head to those damaged areas because they have to be careful not to look like they're taking advantage
of the state. and also after observing some of the damage on the new jersey coast tomorrow president obama will speak at a rally in colorado. that will be here on c-span at 9:00 eastern tomorrow night. we have paul from oklahoma city calling on the others line. caller: yeah i am calling from the lowest unemployment city in the united states dominated by two -- actually four large oil companies. i owned oil company stock and i don't mind paying my fair share whatever the government decides that fair share is on that stock. i cannot understand why mr. romney won't reveal his taxes. does he have something to hide? obviously he does. i get the impression that the main reason he's running is to fulfill some kind of fetish he has because his father wasn't elected, he must be elected. but i'm not fully decided yet. but unless he can do better than he's done in the past, quit lying to the public, open up his tax -- host: tell me what do you need to hear in order to make a decision on who you'll vote for? caller: what i want to hear to decide what i'm going to vote for? that's easy. i worked nearly
-span.org. new jersey suffered some worst damage from hurricane sandy. today, president obama visited the state with governor chris christie and spoke about the federal government's response to the disaster. this is 15 minutes. >> i promise, you are going to be ok. we are going to get this whole thing set up. this is the owner of the marines arrive here. i want to make sure that she knows -- the owner of a marina right here. how long have you had the marina? since 1996? nothing like this has ever happened. well, we will get it done, i promise. we are going to see what we can do. we will try to work through, obviously folks' homes, making sure the power is back on, making sure the streets are clear and all the debris is gone. we want to make sure the small businesses are up and running. is the head of emergency management. he knows what to do. [indiscernible] the other thing is, i know there is a lot of aqua culture here. we will work with the governor's team and work to get everything back and deal with some of the other challenges we have got. [indiscernible] this is something that we know we
on on education, science, and technology. it is bad for youngstown state, and obama's plan is better for the future of america. obama's education plan is better for the future of america. he is committed to hiring 100,00 0 new science, technology, and math teachers. committed to cutting the rate of inflation of college costs in half and to the student loan reform program, the single most important thing nobdody knows about. this alone justifies his reelection if you believe in the future. the old student loan system worked like -- the federal government paid the banks to make loands and guaranteed 93% of the loans. the new system -- under that old system, it meant we dropeped to 16th in the world in college degrees. a perscription for disaster. almost every job is created by someone with a degree. we can't afford to be 16th in the world. so what did the president and congress do? what did congressman ryan do? they passed a law to change the system. we say, here are the people who qualify and the yget the loans at a lower interest rate. every student in the country who gets one of the
with obama having a steady lead. it is a democratic leaning state these days. there has not been an awful lot of campaign activity in terms of visits by the candidates or advertising. they have now really targeted the state this year on like 2008 in the last previous four cycles. host: there has been an awful lot of advertising in the senate races. your polls are showing that the senate race has been considerably closer. he is still holding onto a slight lead, seven points over republican tom smith. what has been happening in that race? caller: is a simple matter if you spend $17 million of your own money, you can get hearing from people. the senator is a member of an institution that is not really very popular these days, the congress. smith is gaining traction just on the strength of his message. and introducing himself to voters. that could be one of the surprises on election night. host: what can republicans read in these polling numbers? caller: on the presidential race? president obama is up 49%, still below 50%. it seems pennsylvania could be a little bit more competitive if they made
of these states. we may be up very late. but obama is doing well in the states he had to win to get over 270 electoral votes. i think romney is hurt by some of the outrageous things that the senate candidates in missouri and indiana have said about a woman's right thochoose. romney hasn't been able to pull away from those candidates. i think there is issues that are working very much in obama's favor. we will see how this thing turns out. >> congressman, he holds a different position than those candidates -- >> his ads are still up in indiana. >> what's more important -- [overlapping dialogue] >> eric: we have the clock counting down. one thing's for sureto be a lon, election night, probably. thank you so much. >> jamie: eric, as each day goes by, new questions are raised about the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. republican senators are now demanding that the obama administration declassify and even make public their surveillance video that turns out was recorded in thedale deadly raid. it is believed there may be audio recordings, of requests for help that night. perhaps th
by state. and that's looking good for obama. no matter what you think about the electoral college. by "huffington post" count obama has 277 electoral votes to romney's 206. colorado florida virginia and new hampshire are still tossup states. according to the "new york times," obama has 243 electoral votes to romney's 206. but as calculated by nate silver, author of the 538 blog who called 49 out of 50 states correctly in 2008, nate silver says obama has 296 electoral votes compared to romney's 241. remember you need 270 to win. by any measure obama's well ahead in the tally of electoral votes. that's the only count that counts. silver, by the way also gives obama a 74.6% chance of winning this election. and i don't know about you but i kind of like those odds. we'll keep our eye on the white house for you. president obama has a statement today, i'll be there for it. we'll see you right back here again tomorrow. have a good one. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show."
know what is going to be the result. maryland, only four states did better for obama than maryland. it's lock. virginia might be pivotal and maybe with the benefit of hindsight, we could have said, if romney had spent more time in virginia, although they've both spent so much time here, by canceling one event in virginia beach, i don't think it is going to make a difference. >> all right. fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin, thank you and stay safe. >> thank you. >> all right. that is just -- that just shows you how strong the storm is expected to be if we are talking about next week. this is not by any means a stretch of the imagination. >> yeah, the real key here. this is uncharted territory. we really haven't ever seen a storm like this sort of make that left hook this late in the season. the wind field is so expansive, all the way from maine to the carolinas, they are getting tropical force wind. it is very powerful. don't be fooled. it doesn't mean it is not still on the way. it will get steadily worse during the course of the day. the wind will be gusting 55, 65, maybe even 70
is that the storm could hinder early voting in the east coast battleground states, but the obama campaign says it thinks early voting overall will be a plus for them. >> our people are coming out. ohio, florida, the first day of early voting in florida, record numbers of people are coming out to vote. something like we have never, ever seen. that's a sign, it's a sign of momentum behind the president's re-election. >> shannon: joo due to the coming storm, governor romney cancelled his events in virginia and will link up with paul ryan in ohio and the two of them will campaign in that key state. ohio's g.o.p. senator rob portman says the momentum in that state is going in romney's direction. >> i have been at 6 of the rallies over the last week, i have been at about a dozen victory centersarn the state and the energy and enthusiasm's on our side. it's really interesting to watch. but, look, we were down 5 to 10 points before the debate. after the debate, we are about dead even and it's moving our way. >> reporter: the first romney/ryan event starts in a couple of hours today. >> shannon: thank
as long as four hours to cast their ballot. >>> president obama and mitt romney are cancelling campaign events in states affected by sandy. governor romney was scheduled to make three stops in virginia tomorrow. he will go to ohio instead. now, the president's cancelling a monday evebt in northern virginia and leaving for florida tomorrow instead of monday. the vice president and first lady, cancelled events because of the weather. >>> still ahead tonight, the impending arrival of hurricane sandy. >>> a live look ike leggett: gaming generated one hundred and eighty... million dollars for maryland schools. question seven will double it. rushern baker: question seven will add table games and... a new casino, generating millions of dollars... every year, without raising taxes. leggett: and audits will ensure the money goes... where it's supposed to. more jobs, and millions for schools. baker: question seven will be good for our kids... our teachers, and our schools. leggett: keep maryland money in maryland. baker: please vote for question seven. leggett: vote for question seven. sandy up n
correspondent john harwood joins us. hi, john. >> president obama's campaign hopes it is going to help him for two reasons. one, that he gets to fulfill the role as commander in chief and ahead of the federal government help states that are affected by this, but also because they think they're winning this race in the battlegrounds and that effectively the race is frozen. now governor romney was out in ohio today, campaigning, making some arguments about the auto bailout which has been an issue that's helped president obama in the state of ohio. but the problem for mitt romney and anyone else participating in the campaign right now is all the coverage is drowning out anything that politicians say. we are locked in a very tight race. we had two new polls out this morning, tracking polls. one, the washington post/abc news poll showed mitt romney 49%-brah 49%-barack obama 48%. another poll shows pro seciselye opposite. obama 48%. but they're the same poll. with a margin of error, we have essentially a tie race but the obama team believes that their advantage is in the battleground states like
. the obama campaign was not worried about those states n. a political sense, mind you, but clearly anything the president is doing now, the response to this crisis is being watched by the country as a whole, and when you have president obama in his role as president right now and mitt romney kind of relegated to the sidelines right now as the republican challenger, that is an advantage for the incumbent; however, we'll have to see that on tuesday whether or not this had any affect on this at all. >> absolutely, much more on how sandy is impacting the presidential election coming up later in the newscast. thank you very much. >>> and back to some of the unbelievable pictures coming out of new york city. this is the subway station and new york city's mayor said all of the 10 tunnels that carry new yorkers under the east river are flooded. limited subway service will resume tomorrow. buses will be used to make up for the lack of trains running between manhattan and brooklyn. meantime, two of new york's three major airports are back open today. the flights resuming slowly at jfk and newark. lag
. on that ground alone you should reelect barack obama for president of the united states. [applause] he has a better health care position than governor romney. they talk about how terrible obamacare is. how it robs medicare. let me tell you what the worst thing we can do is, stay with the status quo. last week the big headline on the front page saying a big reason that working people in this country have not got a rate is because so many employers are paying health care premiums. 6% of our national income is a $1 trillion a year. it was killing us. what happened since obamacare passed? we just passed two years in a row at the lowest in a decade for the first time in 51 years. [applause] we have $1.3 billion in refunds, including $11 million to 143,000 people in ohio. why? because the law says 80% to 85% of your interest premium has a good health care not to profits. 3 million and people have health insurance for the first time in their lives. starting next year, over 30 million americans will be able to afford health care for the first time for them or their children with pre-existing condi
. >> president obama has declared emergencies in six atlanta states. craig beside well, fox news. >>> let's take you downstairs to the weather department. what struck me at the top of this hour is they mentioned, sue and gary did, how the storm is speeding up and impacting the area faster. i wonder if that's good sign in many respects. >> sue what's the word? >> reporter: i think it does a couple of things. first of all, hopefully we get the worst of the surge before the high tide. i know in new york city the tide is at 8:13. we think this will be on land before. we're hoping. it's hard to time all of that. out in ocean city, the high tide is 8:05. hopefully the surge is over before the high tide begins. so maybe that forward motion is a good sign. john, i wanted to answer your question you posted about why we're not seeing the tidal flooding. it's because the wind is out of the northwest. so it's not piling up just yet. eventually that might shift a little bit as the storm system gets more to our northwest and we get a south wind. right now it's pushing away. as we look at radar, as we watch b
.7%. and president obama won this state by a large margin back in 2008 with 9%. let's begin with top issues for new hampshire voters. guest: good morning. and before i get started i want to thank c-span and c-span radio on 15 years being on the year. it's been a very valuable resource for some of us. up here in new hampshire we are a swing state four electoral votes. it sound like a small number. but if al gore had won the four votes he would have become president. so they are very important and this state right now is a toss up. the issues are a little bit different here in new hampshire than they would be across the country. unlike a state like nevada that has a higher unemployment rate, new hampshire is at 5.7%. that's higher than it was all summer around 5.2%. this means that jobs and the economy is an issue that is front and center and it is the number one issue but it may not ring home as much as other issues. host: what areas of new hampshire are the swing areas of that state historically, have provided the winner with the electoral votes? guest: well, right now, we're seeing that the candid
campaigns shuffling their schedules, president obama, mitt romney. a key battleground state. a state you can bet each one of them wanted to get to. if you look at the new poll coming from your paper. mitt romney trailing the president in that state by four points as opposed to eight. the way it was recently. what do you think the storm has impact as far as key states like this? >> again, normally i would say not much. a race this tight, tightening some. any stop that president or mitt romney makes in a local area gets a lot of coverage. draws a lot of people. can be an organizing tool. having to cancel those stops can make an impact on however many were planning to attend. the buzz, they are here, sending competing messages, in terms of earned media as they call it. it's certainly going to make a difference for them. what is being talked about in virginia is largely the storm and not the campaign speeches. it could make a difference. no way to predict which way that cuts. for romney who wants to close that narrowing gap it could be he doesn't get the face time he needs, for obama, he gets to
